Tehran, Iran, Dec. 28 – Dozens of young men have been arrested in the northern province of Golestan as part of a nationwide crackdown on “trouble-makers”, state-run dailies reported on Wednesday.

The deputy chief of intelligence of the State Security Forces (SSF) in Golestan was quoted as saying that under the plan codenamed Zafar (Victory), 61 individuals were arrested by special police patrols and handed over to the judiciary for prosecution.

Zafar, otherwise known as the Plan to Combat Trouble-makers, was initially launched in Tehran in September and soon spread to cities and towns across the nation. Under the scheme, thousands of young men have been arrested within a period of several months on charges such as “indecent behaviour” and “bullying”.

Iranian officials often refer to millions of unemployed young men, who are largely beset by frustration and despair, as “trouble-makers”.
